Excerpts from the report:

Both Ontario and most other Canadian provincial child care systems came under sustained criticism in 2004 as underfunded and fragmented in comparison with most other developed countries.

There were calls for a new universal system of early learning and care, with much greater co-ordination between daycare and public kindergarten programs. The current survey assessed the extent of support for such greater co-ordination. Three-quarters of respondents agree with this proposition and there is very little definite opposition.
